A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.

The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.

According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.

But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.

He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.

Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.

The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.

‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.

A Brazilian man has allegedly shot dead his six-month-old son after his wife refused to have sex with him.

Police have charged Maycon Salustiano Silva, 25, with killing his son in the early hours of Wednesday morning after arguing with his 20-year-old wife Jeniffer at their home in Luziania, Brazil, DailyMail reported.

The baby, named Michel, was pronounced dead in the hospital two hours after the incident.

The accused allegedly claimed he had been drinking and smoking marijuana and ‘didn’t remember what happened.’

Detective Daniel Martins Ferreira, investigating the case, said police believe Silva shot the infant at point blank range ‘in a moment of rage.’

‘We believe the suspect, in a moment of rage when he didn’t get what he wanted, shot the child at point blank range by resting the gun on the baby’s chest as he lay in the cot in his parent’s bedroom,’ he told local media.

A 22 gauge pistol was recovered tucked down the back of a sofa in the family’s living room, along with several rounds of ammunition.

‘The mother reported that her husband woke her up and wanted to have sex with her. She said she was tired and ‘did not want to’.

‘He then apparently became irritated and physically assaulted her in the argument that followed.’

In the midst of the quarrel, it is claimed Silva went to get some water but returned with a gun which he pointed at his wife.

‘At first he allegedly threatened to kill wife Jeniffer. She begged her husband to stay calm, but he only became angrier,’ Ferreira said.

‘She claims he turned the gun on their son and pointed the gun at his chest while demanding if she believed he had the courage to shoot their child. Then he allegedly shot the baby.’

Silva, who has no previous criminal record, was arrested and charged with manslaughter and the illegal possession of a weapon. He is also accused of domestic violence.
